The Sleepless Night of the Maid — Chapter 68
Translator: Scarlet / Editor: Scarlet
“The price of all this is gold. That’s expensive.”
The Duke of Kensington looked displeased at the price of the goods on the document.
“It’s cheap. You’re a Duke, you can pay for it, you know?”
“It’s not like I don’t know that. Let’s just go with this.”
“If I sign, you’ll sign the bottom part of it. How about 50 gold?”
The Duke’s permission had been granted. The document said the stated amount, but the Duke would pay Rex only half.
Rex rolled up the corners of his mouth and leaned his back against the chair. The Duke wouldn’t even think of the cost.
In fact, the cost was 30 gold pieces. Usually, in this case, the price was lower and gradually increased, but it was higher and further increased here. It’s a huge profit for Rex, but the Duke was significantly losing money.
The Duke rose from his seat and brought a bundle of bills from his desk. He wrote the amount on it before Rex’s eyes, signed it, and ripped it out.
“I’ll pay you by the end of this month.”
The Duke’s payment method was always the same, so there was nothing strange about it now. However, Rex, who saw the bill, twisted the corner of his mouth with an expression of disapproval.
“It’s just a signature. You know I get a seal on every document and bill, right?”
“I left my seal in Montana. I can’t carry that around until the holidays.”
“Then I’ll go back to Montana and get the bill. Instead, I’ll give you the goods then.”
“Are you saying you don’t trust me?”
The Duke, leaning against the chair, clasped his hand on the armrest. His eyes were full of anger. How dare he not believe him, and be so arrogant about such a small amount of money?
“It’s not that I don’t believe you, I just want to make sure. Don’t be so angry because I’m not getting stamps from the Duke. I’ll just make deals with other nobles.”
Rex touched his clothes and pretended to get up from his seat.
The Duke’s cool voice caught him. Rex smiled internally and turned around with a feigned puzzled expression on his face.
The Duke got up from his seat, glaring at him, and took the seal from the desk drawer.
“I don’t understand why you insist on a seal.”
The Duke looked at Rex with an irritated expression and stamped the bill.
Rex looked at him and laughed inwardly. He knew that a snake-like Duke tested him. Rex never makes a deal without a seal on the document. There was no way the duke who knew that didn’t bring a seal.
Rex took the Duke’s bill and put it in his pocket. This ended his dealings with the Duke, so he smiled and spoke.
“Thank you, Duke. Then I’ll go now.”
It was time for him to stand up from his seat.
“I’d like you to lend me 30 gold pieces.”
The Duke’s voice sounded like he wanted a loan.
“I’ll pay you back soon.”
The Duke raised his tea cup to his mouth and spoke calmly. Although it must have been said in a hurry, he never looked at Rex or made a regretful expression. The Duke must be trusting in Rex’s position and property. Enormous land and forests were inherited from ancestors, with rent and tenancy from them. And the money that went into the Gallahan Chamber, which distributed the funds at the top of Gallahan, and the salary that came out of serving as the chairman of the Senate.
Above all, the Duke had infinite pride in the fact that he was the head of the Kensington family. It was a pride that the prestigious name was Shin Yong, who wouldn’t dare lend money.
“Of course, you will, but will you be okay?”
“What do you mean?”
